Student Employment

The College Work-Study Program provides on-campus jobs for students who have applied for financial aid and demonstrated financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay educational expenses. Students awarded College Work-Study must maintain a minimum cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0. Students who have been awarded College Work-Study will be notified of this award via the Financial Aid Award Notice. The student's Award Notice will include specific information on how to apply for a Work-Study position. Job postings will be available online after July 1 for the upcoming academic year. Students are not guaranteed a job. You must interview with potential employers before you are hired. Students who do not secure a job will have their Work-Study award canceled. Work-Study funds are limited and students should apply early to maximize their opportunity to receive College Work-Study as a part of his/her financial aid ‘package’.  Students must adhere to the CWS Student Employee Guidelines; failure to do so will result in termination of the College Work-Study position.
